Dead of Winter: Haunted Houses on Film (2012)

Friday, January 13 – Thursday, January 19, 2012

We’re putting the chills back into wintertime with this series featuring some of the most iconic haunted houses ever committed to celluloid. From Robert Wise’s seminal THE HAUNTING to a sneak preview of the brand new haunted inn thriller, THE INNKEEPERS, there’s just something about a creepy, creaky old house that inspires fear. This series features homegrown American classics like the original AMITYVILLE HORROR, THE SHINING and POLTERGEIST alongside foreign titles like THE ORPHANAGE and the amazingly frightening JU-ON: THE GRUDGE, among others. And, to top it all off, the inspiration for this whole series: a rare, uncut 35mm print of Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci’s THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY which was, strangely, filmed in Massachusetts.
